The videos and photos of Abbas Alizada, 20-year old resident of Kabul, Afghanistan has become an online hit as he tries to show the other side of war-torn Kabul with his uncanny resemblance to the old martial artist, Bruce Lee.
Alizada was dubbed as Lee’s reincarnation not only because he looks like Bruce Lee but he can also do the kung fu legend’s back flips and other martial art stunts. He can jump in the air, break wood panels and wing nunchuks with ease and strike Lee’s famous poses.
Alizada wants to become famous on an international level and has watched all of Lee’s movies and has been reading about him a lot.
“I want to be a champion in my country and a Hollywood star,” Alizada said, New York Post reports. He trains at Kabul’s desolate Darulaman palace twice a week where he learns swirling nunchakus apart from other skills.
“The only news that comes from Afghanistan is about war … I am happy that my story is a positive one,” Alizada said in Reuters report.
